Art Nouveau Machinery, Metal & Architecture

Based on my previous post, I tried to find some examples of any art nouveau machinery to widen my search. Most machinery around that time that I found didn’t look particularly ‘art nouveau’ – as I noted before, it tends to be in the surrounding architecture.
The closest to machinery I can find is art nouveau imagery made from metal, especially ironwork.


I looked through the book Art Nouveau Architecture by Keiichi Tahara as a starting point.
I chose these examples because the flowing, organic forms of the metal would work well for what I’m designing. I’m also looking for motifs that I could use as inspiration for the forms and shapes of the plant/ingredients.
